Curse you OP, that tune's going to be playing through my head all day now!

/at least it's replacing this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdcaUMfzXSI)

Also, the only thing more awesome than ACTA getting voted down is ACTA getting voted down 663-13. Booya.

as a USian I wrote a senator and got a form letter back, people in the EU got their people to vote against this thing, I'm jealous, but way to go EU

To be fair, the vote wasn't really about ACTA per-se. The vote was because the Parliament's role under the new EU constitution is greatly expanded, and the Ministers are still practically ignoring them. Before, they could get away with that. Now, this is the first move in "no, you can't".

(Oh, I think they'd of still voted against it, but probably more like 400-250 given the party setup)

Way to go for our Europeans deputy, once again, they show more common sense than others.
